How to Have the Most Romantic Holiday in Bhutan!

How to Have the Most Romantic Holiday in Bhutan! yampu.com

Not many will consider Bhutan as a destination for romantic travel. But then we are not one among that many, are we? As a humble Buddhist kingdom, Bhutan treats every single living creature fairly and equally. And there is a strange all-pervading energy of peace and humility that permeates every corner of the place that can help paint your love life differently. 

How to Have the Most Romantic Holiday in Bhutan!:

  1. Bhutan

Day 1. Paro valley is outright charming

Being the center of trade and invasion by the Tibetans, the valley has the closest cultural connection with Tibet vis-à-vis any other district in Bhutan. Visit Taktshang Tiger’s Nest monastery, the oldest temple of Kyichu Lhakhang, view of the pine-forested valley, the massive fortress of Rinpung Dzong, and the National Museum of Bhutan.

Day 2. Stay over at the village of Trongsa

Romance gets better at the quaint little village of Trongsa. The long history of the Wangchuck kings can be seen from the forts of the district, with the picturesque views of the mountains in the backdrop. Key attractions include Tongsa Dzong, The Tower of Trongsa Museum, and Chendebji Chorten.

Day 3. Thimphu, the capital city is known for its Buddhist sites

Thimphu is one of the world's most intriguing destinations. It combines a natural small-town, romantic feel with a new commercial exuberance that persistently challenges the country's natural conservatism and the heavenly image. Visit the weekend market at Chubachu, the Tashichho Dzong, Simtoka Dzong and  Dechen Phodrang.

Day 4. Bumthang is a punch of four valleys

Bumthang is on the far side of the Black Mountains comprising of four valleys, Chokhor, Tang, Chhume and Ura. Ura is slightly different from the others as it is a traditional village with almost a medieval atmosphere. Visit the Wind Horse Treks, Kurje Lhakhang, Jakar Dzong, Burning Lake, and Ngang Lhakhang.

From Thimphu, it takes about 3 hours by car and unlike the present capital, it is quite warm in winter and hot in summer. Must see places are Punakha Dzong, Sangchhen Dorji Lhuendrup nunnery, Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten and Chimi L’hakhang Temple.
